At over 130 miles long, the Abaco Reef is the third largest barrier reef in the world, and visitors of Elbow Cay have extremely easy access to this reef system.  You can sign up for an open water dive that will take you right to the site, and for those who aren't PADI certified, you can take courses while on the island that will typically include a dive at the reef in the end so that you don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.  

You'll find two dive services, a dive shop, and a small number of interesting dive sites to choose from.
